I am Peggy, originally from France.
When I was pregnant with my first son: I fell in love, struggled, laughed, cried, felt lonely, amazed, depressed, met new friends and discovered a world that became my passion: motherhood, and especially supporting women through their mothering journey.
In 2008 I started training as a Babywearing consultant while founding with other mums the Oxford sling Meet and library. I have since added new skills: Postnatal group Support, Antenatal Teaching and more recently Yoga, Birth Trauma Resolution and Mother Blessing Celebrant.
I have met many women who have inspired me, passing on their wisdom and knowledge. There is no one way to be a mother, but I hope that by sharing this journey with you I can bring some calm for you to travel through and find YOUR own way.
My name’s Dani, and I run mother and baby yoga, yoga for pregnancy and baby massage classes.
My route to the birth and beyond world has been a strange one! First a nursery nurse then Occupational Therapist, when I then chose to return to childcare in the form of nannying and haven’t looked back. My passion for working with families has led me to add skills such as antenatal teaching, mother and baby yoga, yoga for pregnancy to my repertoire, and am now looking to add breastfeeding counselling as well.
In 2020 I gave birth to my beautiful lockdown baby Harvey, and went through the some of the many challenges faced by many new parents during that time. The support I received from family, friends and those in the birth world was what got me through. So now, more than ever I am even more passionate for supporting new parents; wherever they may be on their own unique parenting journey!
I hope to see you soon
